Day 4-8 Convective Outlook
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0358 AM CST Sun Feb 26 2017

Valid 011200Z - 061200Z

A potentially widespread damaging-wind event is possible on
Wednesday (Day 4) from portions of the lower MS Valley northeastward
into the TN and OH Valleys, central and southern Appalachians, and
Mid-Atlantic states.  A mid-level trough is forecast to move
eastward across the MS Valley and towards the Appalachians by early
Thursday while a cold front sweeps eastward.  An appreciably
moist/unstable warm sector and very strong southwesterly flow fields
aloft will conditionally support an extensive squall line
potentially capable of swaths of damaging winds.

Beginning on Thursday (Day 5) and through the weekend, the potential
for severe thunderstorms will be low across the Lower 48 states as
high pressure encompasses much of the area east of the Rockies from
Thursday through Saturday.
